Vive la revolution de sirop d'erable!

All praise to Skdadl for coining the phrase "Maple Syrup Revolution" to describe the current likely change in government from a party whose main priority is evidently to stick to the opposition to a coalition of parties whose main priority is to start bailing the economic lifeboat in which the nation finds itself. Across the northern blogosphere, the troops are rallied - I particularly recommend these posts by Boris at the Galloping Beaver and Dr. Dawg's disembowling of Ol' Dead Eyes "no fair, I'M the Prime Minister, I'M supposed to be the boss" video presentation on Wednesday night and most of the recent posts on Far and Wide and the excellent "Blogging if Necessary, but not Necessarily Blogging."
I'd also suggest you look at the text of Stephen Dion's remarks from Wednesday night instead of listening to the conservatives babble about "treason." In addition to tackling the economic mess Canada finds itself in, the Coalition could also fix a number of other problems.

I think Maple Syrup Revolution fits just about right: The coalition is poised to flatten Harper like a pancake and eat him for breakfast -- and it's just so freakin' sweet.

Vive la revolution!

I have no faith in either Harper or that sorry excuse for a Coalition...if there was a "none of the above", I'd pick it. The tipping point for me was Elizabeth May in discussion about a Senate seat or Cabinet post..WTF?? Between the undemocratic attempt to bankrupt the Opposition parties, and the slathering for power by the likes of May, Liberal party leader hopefuls and Layton, it all disgusts me. However, having said that, i still like Duceppe. Too bad I never get a chance to vote for or against him.

Rev. Paperboy,
We are recalling you...back to Canada you come. You are neither elected nor a representative of the Queen, but you shoot straight.
Please, I will even meet you at the airport.!

Does this mean if Obama turns out to be another Bush Canada is an option again?
